Certain infectious and sexually transmitted disease rates continue to be areas of concern for Iowa's public health, according to data from the 2011 Iowa Health Fact Book.
The University of Iowa College of Public Health, in partnership with the Iowa Department of Public Health, has released the 2011 edition of the book, a broad-ranging report covering the health and health-related behaviors of Iowans.
The fact book assembles health data on areas such as prenatal and infant health, infectious diseases, cancer and other chronic diseases, and injury. Health and social behaviors and population totals and age distributions are also presented. Much of the data are tracked longitudinally so as to follow how Iowans' health and behaviors have changed over time.
